Counselling

St Joseph's has the services of both a Psychologist and a School Counsellor, provided through the Catholic Schools Office, working at the school. They provide support with academic and social assessments. Recommendations are made to assist parents and teachers to cater for the ongoing educational needs of the students.

Access to the Psychologist/Counsellor can occur via a number of avenues:

  1. Self-referral – students wishing to access the service can see their year coordinator to book an appointment
  2. Staff-referral – students may be referred to the psychologist/counsellor by a staff member
  3. Parent request – parents who wish for their child to access the service can contact the relevant student coordinator who will arrange the appointment.

The Psychologist/Counsellor focuses on supporting students to achieve their potential at school. For complex issues requiring more intensive or broader focus, our Psychologist/Counsellor will work to support families in accessing external supports and local services.
